Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the formation of GRIN lenses by optical exposure of photopolymer (Du Pont) and the setting up of a simplistic test experiment for evaluation of resulting polymer optical elements. An essential aspect of the work relates to the duration of the exposure. We address the question of differences of performance related to whether the exposure time is greater than or less than the characteristic time scale of monomer diffusion.
